, and under president bush he had a strong amnesty plan and i said i would not back it. total amnesty like the one president reagan did will cause a lot of problems here and i think we need the workers. obviously, a lot of people are working, and if they are paying their taxes, anger goes down. if they are getting protections that workers receive who are working here legally, then there is anger. i would separate the people who are here into two categories. one would be the green card pipeline, meaning you stay on that avenue, and the workers would be the red card avenue. you cannot jump between the green and the red pipelines. if you choose to be a worker, you processed through the border likely, you can go to the employer and a -- and they can't see that you are legal. right now they cannot tell if they have a legitimate green card. that is the way i would move forward. broad amnesty is something i find it difficult. nnie, your thoughts? caller: we have laws that we do not follow, and you are trying to force us to go with your decision. i saw the same thing yesterday, cutting people
